Who need "rush Vietnam visa"?
The applicants who are not in the list of Vietnam visa exemption are required to apply for a visa prior to arriving Vietnam. However, we recognize the urgent request for Vietnam visa may suddenly arise. Criteria includes:

- You forget to apply for Vietnam visa before and your flight will depart very soon in 1-2 hours on working days or 6-8 hours at weekend or Vietnamese public holidays;
- Your thought that Vietnam visa on arrival means everything will be arranged at arrival airport without any advanced approval from the Vietnam Immigration Department, it is totally wrong.

Emergency visa at weekend (Saturday or Sunday)
It should be noticed that the Vietnamese Government organizations, including the Vietnam Immigration Department and Vietnam Embassy or Consulates in abroad, have 2 days off at the weekend (Saturday and Sunday) or in the Vietnamese public holidays. During these days, a normal processing visa will be suspended until next Monday morning. In case you need an emergency visa for your entry at the weekend or Vietnamese public holidays, you will have to pay extra money for overtime processing fee. Normally, your visa approval letter will be ready in just 4-6 hours after payment completion. Please note that NO visa will be processed before 8:00 AM and after 5:00 PM Vietnam time;
Just remember to select the overtime processing mode when you make a visa application during these days.
How much does it cost?
Normally, a visa on arrival will be completed within 36 - 48 hours at the cost of US$ 17 per visa only (learn more about Vietnam visa fee). In urgent cases, in working days, it can be shorten to 8 hours, 4 hours or 2 hours (at weekend it can be ready within 4-6 hours).
- For 8 hours urgent processing (same day visa processing), US$ 15 added up to normal rates;
- For 4 hours super urgent processing, US$ 30 added up to normal rates;
- For 2 hours emergency processing, US$ 70 added up to normal rates
In Vietnamese public holidays or at weekend (Saturday and Sunday), the Vietnam Immigration Department stops receiving normal Vietnam visa request. However, being a professional Vietnam visa agency, we can still make your visa in just 4-6 hours at a higher service fee. It is not hidden charge as the procedures of the emergency visa processing at weekend or holidays will take more time, more efforts and anxiousness of many involved people. Accordingly, an emergency visa will be charged more US$ 190 than normal one (more about Vietnam visa fees).
We suggest our customers to apply for Vietnam visa as soon as possible if they don't want to spend much money on it. If you don't have a visa in hand at the last minutes, you should delay the flight to have more time to process your visa. If you can't change the flight, we are willing to assist at our best. Normally, the Luna New Year (Tet holiday) is the highest seasons in the year and visitors should apply for Vietnam visa at least a week in advance.
